Complete with a set of five colorful books, LeapFrog Read With Me Scout is an adorable introduction-to-reading experience that is designed by our learning experts to inspire and entertain early readers everywhere! Start your child's reading journey on a cuddly note with an interactive plush toy that helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading. Turn reading time into an exciting new experience with this groundbreaking toy loaded with storybooks, music, lullabies and interact-and-respond activities. Scout provides cuddly story-time experiences that help lay the foundation for a rewarding lifelong love of reading. The plush puppy pal makes reading fun with five interactive, read-aloud books narrated by Scout. Scout responds to every pet, pat, hug and kiss. Press a button on Scout's collar to start reading, and pat his head to turn the page. Scout loves to sing, too! Switch into Sleepy Time Mode when it's time to snuggle and listen to relaxing stories and eight minutes of lullabies. Read With Me Scout is specifically designed to provide a leading-edge early reading curriculum. Each of the five storybooks is designed around a unique core curriculum covering the bases from patterns and rhyming to narrative and concept. Whether you're supplementing the precious time spent reading with your child or providing a new enriching activity, Read With Me Scout helps build a range of cognitive skills. Scout asks more than 70 questions prepared by early reading experts to encourage active engagement and to build important comprehension skills. The play-based curriculum is designed to delight and entertain. Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-aloud experiences are interactive. In other words, children learn best when they are actively involved in asking and answering questions, drawing inferences and making predictions. Read With Me Scout was specifically developed to bring this interactive experience to kids in a magical way to develop key comprehension skills. As your child reads along with Scout, 70+ spoken questions and audio-responses help build comprehension skills that will get your little one on the path to reading success. Discoveries abound when Scout reads out loud! Read With Me Scout includes five different book genres that offer a range of ways to build early reading skills as your child is exposed to different storytelling concepts. The Pattern Book includes rhymes, refrains and repetition to encourage children to predict what comes next; the Narrative Book takes children through a story put together with characters, settings and a sequence of events; the Learn-About Book helps reveal our world through reading and reinforces the concept that print carries meaning; the Rhyming Book helps children learn about the sounds of language while building phonological awareness; and the Concept Book explores concepts like colors to label and classify new information.
  • Scout narrates five included books and asks over 70 comprehension questions to engage kids

  • Teaches vocabulary: The larger their vocabulary, the easier it is for children to comprehend what they read and hear and communicate with others

        Violet has quickly become one of my son's favorite toys. Besides being educational and promoting reading readiness, Violet is very soft and cuddly. Even when he is not reading the books with her, he loves to have her come on his adventures camping under the dining room table or exploring the cave under the bed. I have found it is very rare to have an electronic and educational toy that is also cuddly. As far as the educational aspects of this toy, I started off a little skeptical. Many toys that claim to teach reading comprehension do nothing of the sort, or they have one set of questions that the child hears every time they read the book. Read with Me Violet has many different questions, and I have not had the same experience reading a book with her yet. The questions she asks encourage the child to make connections to their own feelings as well as asking the child to look closer at the book and interact with the pictures and context of the story. I like that Violet reinforces the correct answer after she asks it most of the time. I did find it a little odd that when she asks you to pat her back if you feel happy, she will not accept any other answer before moving on in the story. What if the child is not feeling happy at the time? Other than that, I felt that the educational portion of this toy was very well done. As for ease of use, when I first introduced my 3 year old son to Violet, I handed her to him with the books. I showed him how to turn her on and off (that's always his first question), and showed him how to choose which book he wanted her to read. Then I let him explore on his own. He was quickly able to follow her directions and even started answering some of the questions verbally (something that he doesn't usually do with inanimate objects like TV shows). He was also able to easily figure out how to turn the page and answer questions using the sensors. Overall, I think that this toy definitely does what it advertises. I would definitely recommend this toy to other parents who want to encourage their child to love reading, especially if they are not a family that reads together every day. As a teacher, I would love my students to come to me with the experiences they get from playing with this toy.

        My 3 year old loves anything with Scout. He already has a My Pal Scout (which is a great toy and one of his favorites), and when he saw Read With Me Scout at the store yesterday he desperately wanted to take it home. However, ours doesn't seem to work as well as we would like. To turn the page of the story, you have to pat it's head precisely on the star spot, not too soft or too hard, and if you pat it too many times then it goes and does something else. (Even I had some trouble getting it to work right, so this does not seem to be a toy my child can play with independently yet. He needs my help to facilitate and he needs me to help him with getting the patting right. I realized afterward that you can also pet instead of patting, but we'll try that this weekend.) Also, I wish there was an option to lock the story mode so that if my son picks up Scout to hold him while reading the book, Scout doesn't stop reading. Also, Scout will change stories if my son pushes the buttons on his collar during a story, even if he didn't intend to change the story. When that happens, you have to go back to the story you were reading and start it all over again. I am trying to teach him that some of these motions will cause Scout to stop reading, but I don't know if he gets it yet. I also wish squeezing Scout's paw continuously wouldn't cause him to change songs non-stop (my son does sometimes does this with My Pal Scout, too). You also have to be very careful not to get this Scout wet or dirty.

                Comments about LeapFrog Read With Me Scout:

                Read with me Scout is excellent. One of the most interactive toys that I have ever used. I especially like the pet and hug feature, and of course the kiss feature. It allows you to give love when you are scared at night and have a cute little friend to be there and to comfort you. The stories are entertaining as well, with a giggly sound track and soft fur. Also, the battery lasts INCREDIBLY long. Cleaning may be a little difficult and Read with me Scout also has been known to turn on at night if bumped wrong, So bear this in mind, multiple button presses may be necessary in order to get to the song that you want. Stuffing may also need replaced or refluffed after a lot of snuggles. Not a bad thing, but those four things but enough to drop features down a point. I brought this to the hospital when i was overnight, and it was cuddly and available to give me lots of snuggles, although shut off. I look forward to cuddling this cute puppy nightly, and in my opinion, is possibly the best toy leapfrog has. :)

                    We loved our my pal scout, and my pal violet so it was no surprise we also love the read along Violet. The stores are just the right length for our 2 year old, she loves to read along. It teaches her so much, colors, following instructions, basic songs and counting. We love the bed time settings too and the music is perfect. The only con I have is when you are choosing the story. It tells you about the cover and helps make sure you have the right book. I usually have the book first then hit a button.

The experience is interactive; kids have the option of choosing which book to read. Scout also stops periodically to ask the child to point out some aspect of the story. I am pleased with this purchase.

                        I read a review by another Mom that is exactly what I have experienced. I thought the toy was broken because every time you tried to read a new book it would start with the weather book. It asks the same questions over and over and the sleep mode does not work. Not a good quality product. Skip it.

                                On this one the collar buttons don't work at all .... the previous one we had issues with the front left paw not working at all. Our son loves his original Scout and was excited to get a Reading Scout ... seemingly a big swing and a miss with this particular toy. It will be going back (again) and we will invest in some learning games for the LeapPad.

                                    I hope that we are using it wrong. However, it does not work as advertised. You can not do anything until it sings through the songs and reads half of the weather story. Every time. My daughter never gets to a new story because she is tired of hearing the same half of the weather book, but it takes too long to be able to change it. Also, on the sleep time setting it is supposed to turn off talking features so as not to wake the child while cuddling. This does not work, and that setting does the exact same things as the reading setting. I thought we had a defective one, so we exchanged for a new one. It does the same thing, so must be the programming.
